dc.description.abstract "What is 'Common Property Rights' and how to understand and manage these rights? As Vincent Ostrom stated at the MAB-conference in Svolvaer in 1993 the human way of understanding goes through definitions and notions. Obviously discussion of different items under the umbrella of Common Property, do need a precise conceptual basis. To obtain the conference goal of 'deeper understanding of how and why institutions of common ownership can manage resources in an equitable and sustainable way', the notions must be unanimously accepted and practiced. As legal- and social sciences do use the everyday language and as the field of Common Property study is interdisciplinary, lots of difficulties are caused by the fact that each author does use the same expressions without having the same meaning. I would like to address some ideas concerning the efforts of conceptual approximation. Since the session 1 is discussing Legalizing as a problem and the notion of legalizing according to The Concise Oxford Dictionary does mean 'to bring into harmony with the law', what is more appropriate than to use the legal notions as analytical instruments. It is a question of Commons being acknowledged by the legislator or court, as rights." en_US
